Weekly Writing Challenge: 50 words of Chagrin


McDonald's LogoTurning to the man behind me I* said, “You can order; I haven’t decided.”

“Mac’n fries,” He told the cashier.

“Sounds good, I’ll have the same.”

A tray arrived with fries, which I began sampling.

“You through?”  He asked.

“Just need my Big Mac…”

“You through eatin’ my fries?”



This true story is part of the WordPress Weekly Writing Challenge. *Identities have been removed to protect [my mother] from further embarrassment then this faux pas already provided.
